Prep hockey champs look to power through sectionals


The 2013 Minnesota boys' state hockey tournament is a week away. While that promises to be its usual thriller, many contend the section finals are more pressure-packed.

Sectionals across Minnesota start tonight in both Class A and Class AA.

Among the big games, defending big schools champion Benilde-St. Margaret's faces Wayzata tonight at Mariucci Arena.

Also tonight, Duluth Denfeld faces crosstown rival Duluth Marshal for the 7A title at Amsoil Arena. A win for Denfeld, and they'll return to St. Paul for the first time since 1989.

St. Thomas Academy, last year’s Class A champion, takes on Totino-Grace Friday night at Aldrich Arena.

Here's a complete list of games, courtesy of the Minnesota State High School League.

Some the action will be streamed live on, the TV partner of the MSHSL. That schedule is here.
